The Pilates Method can work for everyone, regardless of fitness level! Exercises can be mat or machine-based. Pilates is of an holistic nature, being based upon a well-constructed philosophical foundation. Central to the method is 'awareness' of your own body' and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles of relaxation, concentration, co-ordination, centering, alignment, breathing, stamina, and flowing movement.
Body Control Pilates offers a comprehensive programme of exercises for both mat and machine work. They are adapted from the 'classical' exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. In order for someone to work safely and effectively and to gain the full benefits of Pilates, these classical exercises should be broken down to establish good movement skills thus building the best possible foundation upon which to progress towards the classical, more advanced work. This is the essence of the Body Control Pilates Method.
